This week’s header image comes from Da Capo 3 (MangaGamer) which got a release date this week (Jan 20, 2017)
VNTS (Visual Novel Translation Status Updates Series) is published each Saturday and brings the latest updates from VN translation projects — both licensed and by fans — from around the net. If you find any errors, or you think a project is missing from this list, please let us know in the comments.
From The Team: Well, Happy New Year(‘s eve), everyone! Due to RL complications, the VNTS team had to scramble to get this post out (Decay did all the tables except Fan TL last night, and I’m throwing this together as quickly as I can this AM). Consequently, there isn’t much by way of announcements or commentary. Just remember that 1) we’re going to be purging a bunch of projects from the rolls either this coming week or the week after; and 2) feedback surveys were delayed (slightly), but should be up within 9 days.
